ABOUT THE ARTIST

Personal Profile

Jenny graduated with honors from Macomb Community College with her first Associates in Art for Advertising (2010) and second in Creative Imaging & Illustration (2012). She is actively completing her Bachelors of Fine Art in Graphic Design through Academy of Art University.

Passionate about the positive effects good design can have on small businesses, and knowing the power of emotional connection through art, Jenny has partnered her freelance skills with small businesses and nonprofits throughout Southeast Michigan for the last ten years. Most notably, her employment as Manager of Galleries & Digital Media for Rochester's Paint Creek Center for the Arts (2017-present) and her role as the Artist Liaison for the Art & Apples Festival (2017-present) has allowed her to be fully immersed in the field she loves both as a graphic designer as well as an advocate for other Michigan artists.

For other artists, she has curated and facilitated more than ten fine art exhibitions through PCCA's gallery, nearly twenty off-site gallery displays at Oakland municipal organizations, and coordinates and manages the daily operations of a Michigan-made artist market since 2017. Her own artwork has been included in twelve group exhibitions and one solo display since she began showing in 2015.

2021 Update: On a sunny Friday in August, Jenny married her best friend and officially became Jenny Stacey. Work created before these happy nuptials will still reflect her maiden name, Creech. Work created after will feature her married name.
